--The Havana correspondent of the New York Journal of Commerce, writing on the 26th ult., says:

‘ The news brought by the Pajaro del Oceano, arrived 24th, from Port au Platte, St. Domingo, does not quite confirm previous information, and the authorities here are hesitating about sending down the balance of the force, and the two vessels of war named in my last. Three battalions of Cazadores, (light infantry,) and two companies of artillery, are ready to be sent on board the ships. The story of revolt, and that ‘"the Spanish flag had been displayed by the revolutionists,"’ is now tempered with the information that ‘"they do not ask the assistance or protection of Spain or Spaniards."’ The emigrants sent down by Spain have been a little too precipitate, and a good deal too certain of their game, as it now seems. The Bianca, too far on her way to recall, may compel a different issue, and involve the authority here in the necessity of forcible action to justify what has already been done to destroy the independence of a recognized Government.

’ Since writing the foregoing, I have ascertained that the Spanish war steamer Pelago got to sea the night of the 26th, with a detachment of troops, provisions and coals for St. Domingo; and further, that all doubts and hesitancy have been overcome, and that about 5,000 troops will be displayed in the capital of the Republic of St. Domingo, that the screw frigate " Petronilla" and the war steamer Blasco de Garay will leave for that place as soon as they have taken on board their shell, provisions, coals and their quota of troops. The "City of Norfolk," steamer, recently condemned as a slaver, is also loading with provisions, coal and camp equipage.--She will take a detachment of artillery; and three other Spanish Government transports are loading for the same point with field service stores and supplies of all kinds.
